Beo Morales (Guitar, Guitar Synthesizer and Laptop)
Fred Jorio (Vocals, Bass, Guitar and analogue Synthesizers)

Her Laurie-Andersen-meets-Sex-in-the-City-electro-cabaret makes you sentimental for the Yamaha Dx7 and the homegrown lo-fi beats of 1985. Topped with soulful, ironic and freeform urban tales delivered with a 3-octave range.
